I’ve been away on a short and very last minute trip to Glasgow. The town has way too many museums, therefore I’ve only manage to see a few. But that’s not to say I didn’t find a few little gems 🙂
Mitchell Library appeared on some list as a ‘must see hidden gem’. I agree it is gorgeous on the outside, but I didn’t manage to see anything inside. A hall that was looking very grand was under restoration and beside that the staff wasn’t helpful at all, so I’ve just stumbled upon a few display cabinets showcasing the 1938 Empire Exhibition anddddddddd non other than then original Auld Lang Syne by Robert Burns.
The other very lovely gem came from The Gallery of Modern Art in the shape of handprints of famous authors. The prints are made by Hans-Peter Feldmann using Charlotte Wolff’s prints from 1930s. In pictures, from left to right: Antoine de Saint-Exupery and Aldous Huxley. Simply delightful, enjoy!
